Populace Badge

The following badge associated with this name was registered in May of 1999 (via An Tir):
Azure, a compass star voided argent.


History of the Badge:
This badge was registered to An Tir and used by the Northern Region before we became a principality and is now used as the populace badge.

The badge was actually registered in Oct 1981. Yup. To a very nice lady by the name of Astriel of Smael Nest in Caid.

When we began seriously rumbling along the path toward becoming a principality, Ariel de Courtenay (who lived in Shittimwoode at the time) designed what essentially was the same badge. Not on purpose, but for all heraldic purposes the same.

We only discovered that the badge actually belonged to someone else when we started getting our heraldic ducks in a row. On the off chance that she might be willing, we contacted Lady Astriel and asked humbly that if she wasn't using it, might she be willing to transfer her badge to our yet-to-be principality? She sweetly replied that she'd always wanted extensive lands in the north and very graciously transferred the badge to An Tir to hold on our behalf. If she ever shows up at an event in Tir Righ, she deserves to be wined and dined as a honoured guest.

I've always considered Lady Astriel to be one of the lesser-known godparents of Tir Righ.
